Coconut! I love coconut and this tea certainly delivers. The loose tea itself is quite pretty with the petals mixed throughout. Once brewed, it tastes mainly of toasted coconut with an accompaniment of milk chocolate and smooth black tea in the background. The taste lingers after sipping and is absolutely delicious! I drank it with a dash of milk and re-steeped a second time with success of good flavour. This will certainly be one of my favourite afternoon tea treats and I am happy to have a tin of this.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

This is a creamy vanilla tea and more delicious than I expected. The tea taste is light and smooth and the aroma is warm and comforting. Drinking it reminds me of this wonderful vanilla hot chocolate I had once; even though the taste isn’t of chocolate, the vanilla is so rich and creamy it reminds me of that. Not artificial tasting at all with the benefit of being decaf for those times when I don’t want too much caffeine. A lovely tea to have around.

After coming to the end of this jug of iced tea, I realize that although it is tasty there isn’t really much tea taste at all and it is sort of like having a peach drink. It still is nice and I would have it again if I happened to have some, especially since I like the fact that it is decaf.

never had decaf tea… does it lose flavour?

Well, this is actually the third decaf I’ve tried – all recent from H&S. I think this one seemed to lose some of its tea flavour after being in the fridge a day or so although the peachy-ness remained. Tea flavour was light to begin with though so it was hard to tell.

drank Buttered Rum (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Delicious! I didn’t think I would like this but I have recently been trying flavoured teas and discovering that there are some really fun, tasty teas. Even so, on first sniff of the dry leaf I initially thought it smelled sort of sour but then as I took a second whiff, I got a butterscotch impression which was decidedly better and prompted me to give it a try. Brewed, it is a rich butterscotch and creamy coconut tea. So delicious to drink with a small dash of milk. This is one of my favourite flavoured black teas to drink right now especially in the evening when craving something like dessert. I have also re-steeped it at a longer brew time with still good flavour and no bitterness.

This is a really tasty peach tea! I got a loose leaf sample package of this with the intent to try it iced, and I used the whole packet to make up a jug. I was really impressed with the scent in dry leaf form as well as once brewed, and the taste was as peachy as it promised in its aroma. A light and refreshing delight, and if this is suppose to be a decaf tea it isn’t very obvious by taste. I would probably enjoy this on occasion as an iced tea only.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

I love Paris loose leaf tea. It has a lovely sweet aroma and tastes beautifully like caramel and black currants while still maintaining a smooth tea flavour in perfect balance. I have had it both hot and cold and love it both ways; it is one of my favourite iced teas to have.

My first tasting note. I just received this in a recent Harney’s order and was most excited to try this after reading so many reviews here. I really like it and find it makes a good coffee alternative in the morning. A light tea taste enhanced by a slightly nutty bittersweet chocolate flavour. I look forward to trying longer steeping times and having it iced as well.

Love loose-leaf tea. My favorite right now is black, both straight and some flavoured. I mostly drink black teas with a small dash of milk or cream but sometimes just clear.

I am enjoying finding favorites and what I like to keep in my cupboard.

Recently I discovered that I enjoy green teas so am exploring those a bit also.

Likes: cacao/chocolate, coconut,
Dislikes: rooibos, bergamot, seaweed, licorice
